Guide was great. Boat ride great. A lot of repeat history from the city tour.

The city bus tour was both informative and a good introduction to the streets of the city. Our tour guide/ driver was knowledgeable and humorous in his presentation. The harbor cruise was a recap of the history of the Fort Sumter event as well as the earlier history of the of the the city. Once again the presentation was given by an extremely knowledgeable person. I would highly recommend this tour for any first timer or just for the fun of going.

They changed the order of the tour after purchase unknown to us. Harbor tour was great. The guide was very knowledgeable and fun. City tour guide was knowledgeable but spoke so fast and had us turning our heads from left to right so fast I was afraid of whiplash! Please speak a little more slowly and don’t repeat information 3 or 4 times in a row. Once is plenty unless someone asks!
